17th Nov Basingstoke. Just got back from your gig with my youngest son. He, as was I were blown away. It was my 11yr old son's first concert and he will remember it with fond memories for the rest of his life as will I. Thank you for talking to him and making the night so special, Not just to John but Buddy and both the band's, a cracking night. Thank you.

Steve knapp - Fri, Nov 17th, 2017 3:11 PM PST
Saw you at Basingstoke yesterday very good but I was disappointed that you had no lead guitar it meant to much bass and drums last year was much better when you had the lead guitar I enjoyed the forth band buddy Whittington..

Gary Burns - Fri, Nov 17th, 2017 3:59 AM PST
So when did Clapton is Odd start appearing on toilet walls all over the British Empire and environs thereof?

Dear Terry (15th Nov) - Thu, Nov 16th, 2017 3:17 PM PST
Glad to hear you enjoyed the show! We wanted to let you know that the no photography policy is put in place by the venues and has nothing to do with John. Most have had it for a while, but seem to have been more strict with enforcing it recently. Thank you for the good wishes to John! - johnmayall.com

Nicholas Bennett - Wed, Nov 15th, 2017 9:26 AM PST
Hi John,
Coming to see you tomorrow 16th November at High Wycombe. Last saw you in Sheffield in 1967 with your Bluesbreakers. Would really like to meet up after the show, Still playing lead guitar myself. Best wishes - Nick B.

Terry Villars - Wed, Nov 15th, 2017 9:09 AM PST
Great show in Oxford last week - nice to see a trio but did prefer it when Buddy came on stage for 1 song - the whole audience lifted at that point - it was a great gig as usual - I do have to ask though....was there a no photography policy as I tried to take a picture and was told off in no uncertain terms by a staff member - the theatre say it was the policy of the booking company but having seen John many times before that was never a problem! Keep on rocking John - you're fantastic!

Gary Burns - Sat, Nov 11th, 2017 2:39 AM PST
Really fantastic to hear an autobiography is in the works, now I have a new album, "Three for the road" and a great book to look forward to as well! Apologies to Dinu Logoz for misspelling his name in earlier comments. Keep on playing please Mr Mayall you bring joy to the world.

Phil Saugman - Fri, Nov 10th, 2017 2:59 PM PST
Hi John and everyone front and back stage. I was at the Oxford show (8th November) and had a wonderful and memorable evening. The music was fantastic and the atmosphere was so personal. An evening I will treasure in memory.
My thanks to you all.
Phil

I'm student at Bournemouth, Archaeology, but Blues hit me between my two ears.Bluesbreaker needs to be revived and if I'm pleased to the right person Mr Mayall, I'd like to make an effort for rehearsal, just only one.If the Devil read this message it will surely go through the Universe.
Sincerely yours! Blues Never Die...OS

Helge Henriksen - Fri, Nov 10th, 2017 8:08 AM PST
Totally agree with Terry. John,s band must have a solo guitar player. No the sound is not like before.....

A long-time fan - Fri, Nov 10th, 2017 5:25 AM PST
Terry (below) - You are so right and everyone I was with at the London gig felt the same way.

Terry - Fri, Nov 10th, 2017 2:03 AM PST
Saw John for the umpteenth time at the Cliffs Pavilion in Southend last night. Great to meet him in person one more time. A stunning performance from Buddy Whittington's band set a high bar for the evening. Sadly as a trio John's band just didn't have the depth to wow the audience who were quite subdued. That was until Buddy joined the lineup. Then the show came alive. I think John must have realised that as Buddy stayed on stage for the remainder of the show which clearly wasn't planned. The result was fantastic, just like the great shows of old. Please please revert to a 4 piece for touring John. Look forward to seeing you back in Southend again Awesome.

Dinu Logoz - Thu, Nov 9th, 2017 5:54 AM PST
Dear Gury Barns, this is Dinu Logoz (not Dino Lugoz...). What a brilliant nonsense about Mayall's babies, just adorable!

Dear Gary (Nov 6th) - Wed, Nov 8th, 2017 1:04 PM PST
We are happy to say that yes, John does have an autobiography in the works! We're working on getting it published at the moment, and hope to have some news soon. Please feel free to check back with us. - johnmayall.com

Katherine Pegrum - Mon, Nov 6th, 2017 11:58 AM PST
Do you have a list of gigs from 1966/67.would love to know the date JM and the B.B. played at Bournemouth College cos I was there and would also love to know who was playing in the band at that time ....please !

Gary Burns - Mon, Nov 6th, 2017 12:24 AM PST
Hi, I am wondering if Mr Mayall has started writing his autobiography yet and do hope that this is something at least being considered> I have read the two available books by Richard Newman and Dino Lugoz. The Newman book is basically self praise for the author and his great taste in blues music, therefore self serving tripe with little to recommend to anyone who cares about Mr Mayall's contributions to music and art. The Dino Lugoz volume merely reveals he wishes he had John's babies and serves as a shopping list of albums (a quite good one though), however, neither volume really gives any feel for the times and changes of a unique artist in flux and transition while pursuing a singular course in music. Their are very few artists who have accomplished the maintenance of road bands while charting their own course. Two others come to mind in Frank Zappa and Duke Ellington with Mr Mayall managing to attract great musicians and produce great to exceptional music. Love or hate any John Mayall album but you won't find mediocrity on any tracks he has recorded. Well I hope Mr Mayall does have the time and inclination to write the only valid take on his career as well as keeping the music happening. Hope to hear the new album from the trio soon I believe it's title is "Three for the Road" and is live. A studio album would also be good, perhaps with a guest on one or two tracks!

Jezz & Barbara - Sun, Nov 5th, 2017 3:25 AM PST
Guys - thanks for an awesome night in Cambridge - great musicians led by the ageless John. Wonderful to talk with you all. Come again soon. Your Chicago Legends await!

Tom (fan from the sixties) - Sat, Nov 4th, 2017 7:17 AM PDT
The sound was unfortunately shockingly bad at Cadogan Hall (nov 2), but we heard it was fixed for the second night. Maybe the wrong venue?

I agree with the below said that the absence of a guitar (lead & rythm both when mayall is on the keys & harp) takes a lot out of the songs and make things sound all too similiar.

A long-time fan - Sat, Nov 4th, 2017 4:15 AM PDT
I was at the Cadogan Hall yesterday and can't agree with the previous post that the wrong guy topped the bill - but I can understand the comment. What a band John would have with Buddy (or Rocky) on lead guitar. The current band is very good - energetic, entertaining, talented and worth going a long way to see. But there's something missing. I remember reading an earlier post which said that a lot of the songs sounded the same and although I wouldn't go that far I can understand the comment. It was John Mayall who introduced so many of us to Freddie and Albert King and gave us Clapton, Green, Taylor and all the others who followed. I'll be there next time, John, but please give us back our lead guitar.

Mike Burns - Fri, Nov 3rd, 2017 11:37 AM PDT
Bravo John. What an excellent preformance from yourself, your band and of course, Buddy Whittington Band. I sat right at the front in Cadogan Hall and had a fantastic time. I was however disappointed that I struggled to hear your voice John over the drum kit and base guitar which were overwhelmingly loud but i still loved every minute of it. Good luck on the rest of your shows.
Mike

Merry Player - Fri, Nov 3rd, 2017 8:34 AM PDT
Can't wait to see John M again. Next week at Guildford, UK.

Beata - Thu, Nov 2nd, 2017 5:45 PM PDT
If you missed the concert tonight at Cadogan Hall,you will always regret it. The music was just incredible. John Mayall is totally unique-able to carry everybody off on the notes he plays. Each instrument he touches is like magic. Also,the band was fab. The drummer - my goodness - what a virtuoso, and the bass player equally fantastic. Good luck with the tour! You will bring an incredible music for the fans to enjoy.

Stephen Potter - Thu, Nov 2nd, 2017 3:53 PM PDT
Cadogan Hall 2 November. Great musicianship spolied by rotten sound. Vocals almost inaudible. Fix for tomorrow!

Andy Forbes - Tue, Oct 31st, 2017 3:59 PM PDT
His stories about artists with whom he had worked (one of whose harmonica playing he said was not matched by his personality) and the information about the songs were both interesting and entertaining. I also really liked the trio format. This was the fifth time I had seen John who only seems to get better with age. 2/2

Andy Forbes - Tue, Oct 31st, 2017 3:25 PM PDT
I thought that John´s concert at Portsmouth Guildhall last Sunday was brilliant and that his energy and stamina at 83 is quite incredible. The set drawn from throughout his career demonstrating the breadth and subtlety of the Blues together with John´s rapport with the audience was received with a standing ovation and demand for an encore. 1/2

Carol - Mon, Oct 30th, 2017 1:13 PM PDT
Love to know when John Mayall will be coming back to Canada!

- Mon, Oct 30th, 2017 6:35 AM PDT
Hello John Mayall
Don't want to bother writing my name but was at your Guildhall performance last night, 29th October, in Portsmouth> You guys were fantastic. The audience was pretty low-key, I think you'll agree, but in spite of the rather quiet crowd, I KNOW that as always, everyone was absolutely mesmorised by the three of you and how incredibly talented you are. My goodness John, can I have some of your tonic for never-ending youth and fitness? Cheers, a Marin County, CA resident living in Portmouth :-) :-)

Nicholas Rose - Mon, Oct 30th, 2017 5:24 AM PDT
Well, who are we to comment! I've followed John for best part of 50 years. I've followed his trends, often beyond my tastes but then I've grown up to appreciate them. Last nights gig in Frome was excellent. Not least of all because John enjoyed it - and the audience. Well done John. 83 and till pushing the boundaries! I travelled from Chichester because the Cheese and Grain is a good venue unlike Portsmouth Guildhall! All the best to John and his band. Nick Rose

Adrian Wilson - Sat, Oct 28th, 2017 6:49 PM PDT
Thank you John for a brilliant show last night at The Hall For Cornwall, Truro, and thank you for all you have done for The Blues over the years you are a true legend (PS, terrific set from Buddy Whittington as well)

Peter Hampden - Sat, Oct 28th, 2017 1:51 PM PDT
I have to agree with Mike.This is not one of my favorite bands John Mayall has put together. I do still love the early music.

Mike David - Fri, Oct 27th, 2017 1:21 PM PDT
Not my favorite lineup for John Mayall IMHO!

Roberta Tyrrell - Thu, Oct 26th, 2017 1:10 PM PDT
John Mayall and his fellow band members blew my socks off! (I submitted my comment before I had finished it!).

Roberta Tyrrell - Thu, Oct 26th, 2017 1:08 PM PDT
Superb show at Norwich last night. John Maya Buddy Whittington's effortless blues style was also a joy.

Geoff Knight - Thu, Oct 26th, 2017 5:40 AM PDT
Fntastic performance by John. Took me back to The old Marquee club in Oxford St. the Flamingo etc. Shame about the support band BORING.

I walked in and shuck your hand John with the words "back again" and indeed I was ... a splendid evening of live music...I'm only 20 odd albums in so I need to catch up have a ball on the rest of the tour....Thank you....Your first on the turntable this evening.......and the amount of Freddie King tunes Buddy let fly was a real treat....Superb

Peter Stevens - Thu, Oct 26th, 2017 12:32 AM PDT

Stu Lawler - Wed, Oct 25th, 2017 9:28 AM PDT
Haven't heard a lot about the UK tour performances but it would be a crime if John did not get Buddy up to play a few tunes with him for old times sake. After all John has called Buddy the "greatest Bluesbreaker of them all".

Timothy Hyndman - Tue, Oct 24th, 2017 1:06 PM PDT
Saw John at Birmingham on Sat 21st as a 60th birthday surprise,was blown away by an amazing concert.What a wonderful memory to keep, hope to see you again soon.

Went to see john at the phil in Liverpool, have seen him 5 times in thr last 3 years Some thing missing twithout a lead guitar especially when Buddy was sat in the dressing room ,pity as I am a great fan.

Hi John!!! Have a great tour in your country and don't forget here in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay you have many many fans. We don't lose the faith of seeing you playing here in South America again!!! KEEP THE BLUES ALIVE!!!!

A long-time fan - Wed, Oct 11th, 2017 2:56 PM PDT
John, I think I've seen just about every one of your bands since 1967 - in four different countries, no less, and in venues ranging from the Gaiety Ballroom in Grimsby to the Royal Albert Hall in London. I saw the trio at Ronnie Scott's last time you were over and very much enjoyed the gig. I have to admit I missed the lead guitar but you're the boss and your judgement has always served you well. I particularly enjoyed 'Blues for the Lost Days' and hope you'll play it on the second night at the Cadogan Hall. It always seems the right song for a London gig. I hope as well that you'll bring on the wonderful Buddy for a couple of numbers with your great musicians. Best wishes for a successful tour. By the way, I saw an old Flamingo contemporary of yours at Ronnie Scott's last week - Georgie Fame, a mere youngster at 74 but what a great singer.

Valerie Welch - Wed, Oct 11th, 2017 7:52 AM PDT
Hi John I met you 50 years ago when you played at Dreamland, Margate and I also went to London to see you play! Do you remember me? I was 17 at the time. My friend told me that you will be performing at the Marlowe, Canterbury 11 November. Hope your tour is a big success.

I'd love to see John play. One of my long time heroes. Gutted I missed too many heroes, John, you influenced so very very many. I'm in awe. But £30+ ? Sorry can't afford that. I'd so love to see you but I WILL watch a young blues protege in a pub and buy them a pint.

Gary Burns - Sun, Sep 17th, 2017 12:23 AM PDT
Loved "Talk about That" still hungry when is the next album out! Rocky was and is a brilliant guitarist you are competent with the instrument too, any chance of an acoustic set with drums mixing guitar and harp strongly??

Terry Walsh - Thu, Sep 14th, 2017 10:20 PM PDT
John, been following you from the start and back in the 60's formed our own group playing in venues around Auckland New Zealand. At 65 I am still singing and the old band are coming together in 2018. Love your style, its unique and up there with the best. Keep it blue.

I spent many happy hours in Johns tree house with his brother and friends, I pass his house every day. I miss his dad who used to cycle everywhere.John left a huge amount of blues recordsl in the house, I wonder what happened to them. The house is just as it was when John lived there and has just had a fresh coat of paint. Most of the people John would have known have now passed on but I am still here and when we were young we all new John was heading for greatness. Well done John, Dave Williams.

Just stumbled onto this not board. Now playing "Turning Point" for the X-thousandth time and wondered where the tour is. Would like to pile on that I, too, value no album more than Turning Point, nor the two "acoustic" line-ups I attended during that era. And I've seen a lotta music events. I'll be watching for the next visit to Seattle.

I bought the turning point album when it first came out. At the time I thought it was the greatest record ever. 25 years past and I played it again! Same reaction! I listened to it again today. Different reaction. Now i think its the best album by any artist. Blues, rock, jazz whatever. Thanks john

John Leggett - Sun, Aug 13th, 2017 10:42 AM PDT
Last night I saw John Mayall live in Park City, UT last night, the 4th show of 4-night gig. It was a fantastic performance! The trio is magnificent, and clearly enjoy playing with each other. Of course the bass player and drummer are superb musicians, as in Mayall Bands of the past, but in addition to band leader and song writer, John Mayall sings, plays harmonica, keyboards and the guitar so well. Bravo!

Michael Salomon - Sat, Aug 12th, 2017 11:31 PM PDT

Goldy McJohn told me a story last week July 31st that while playing the Whiskey a Go GO back in the day around 67, with Steppenwolf. You told him to quit jumping around so much and take it down a Notch Mate. He admitted he was taken back a bite, but considering the source he took it to heart, and you were right. All his equipment was stolen that night. He said without blinking a eye you gave him your Hammond B3 organ and said take the Lesley too, I'm just tripping on it. He has it to this day. Goldy said it was the Most single Selfless,Generous thing that anyone ever did for him. Goldy passed away unexpectedly the next morning Aug. 1st. John, Goldy held You in the Highest Regard right to the end, just the Very Best!

Hello John. I've enjoyed your music for many years and even ran a spot light for you and your band once sometime in the 70s in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
I'm wondering if you still paint? The cover of Hard Road is very nice and it would be nice to see more of your art work.
Keep on keepin' on.

I last saw you live in 1972 at The Free Trade Hall in Manchester when I was a mere strip of a lad. I ma coming to see you again, after so many years, at Venue Cymru in llandudno. I now run a small B&B about half a mile from the Venue and would consider it an honour if you were to stay here for B&B.

Saw the band at the Cabot last night... fantastic show, John was in great form and the band was tight! Closing out the set with room to move was an added treat. Bought everyones CD's on the way out. Was especially impressed with Gregs playing, my first exposure to him. Any idea how to purchase his Live On Stage CD?

Steve Branch - Fri, Jun 9th, 2017 2:40 PM PDT
Dear Band,
I saw you last night at the Narrows. I had never seen John Mayall in concert, but I have been a fan of your recording for decades. I was very excited to finally see the master in concert. You folks KILLED last night, in particular Greg Rzab! It was such a wonderful concert. Keep up the good work.

We passed your questions on to John, and he said that he's written too many songs to count, and regarding the violin piece that he always hires soloists for what they bring to the table, so their contributions are always their own. We hope that helps! - johnmayall.com

John Valentino - Fri, Jun 2nd, 2017 3:33 AM PDT
How many songs has John written, and on "Road Dogs" did John write the music for the violin piece, or did he let dale improvise? Thank you, been FAN FOR 50 YEARS!!!

Dearest Mr. Mayall,
I had the pleasure of meeting you at a concert in Seattle about 20 years ago. I introduced myself, and shared with you that I was named after your dear friend Roxanne. You were kind enough to open your wallet and share a picture of her... I will be journeying to Washington in July from Ohio, and will be at your concert at Chateau St. Michelle.
Would you please consider playing "Thoughts About Roxanne" at this show? It would be an honor, privilege and over the moon dream to hear you sing the song I was named after. I am bringing my father, who named me after your song, to enjoy and bond once again over your incredible music. Thank you for your time and consideration of my heartfelt request!

Thank you for your post! We're sorry about the lack of Scottish dates. Many people have commented and we asked the promoters why this happened, and they said that when they booked the tour about a year ago there weren't any venues available for dates that would fit into the schedule. Cities they checked included Glasgow, Dunfermline, Aberdeen, Inverness, Dundee and Edinburgh. John loves to come there, so hopefully next time! - johnmayall.com

Thank you for the story! That sounds like a fun night. We asked John your question, but unfortunately he doesn't remember that particular show. This was his response: "Sorry John but that is too far back in time to remember. We were playing 8 or 9 gigs a week back then." - johnmayall.com

We asked John your question, and he said that they played at the same time. We hope that helps! - johnmayall.com

Hi John,

Do you remember touring in 1966 promoting the "BEANO" album? You played at Salford Tech (now University). It was May 1966 so it was 51 years ago this May 2017. We were your support band "FUZZ" and Eric for some reason had a dud amplifier. I didn't know who you all were at the time and I was asked if I would lend my Vox AC30 amplifier to Eric. I nervously handed it over (it was on HP at the time)and have always been glad I did. He put a crystal tape recorder microphone in the back of it and hooked to the PA. I've always been a fan ever since.

Regards,

John Senior

We asked John about the songs recorded with Paul Butterfield in '66 and this was his reply: "There were only the four songs that we recorded that day and all went very well." - johnmayall.com

Thank you for your question. We asked John and this was his reply: "Although we were close friends I don´t remember ever performing on stage with his band." We hope that helps! - johnmayall.com

"Talk About That" is without question my favorite JM album of new material since "Tough". Also digging the fact that it's mainly originals, although the few covers are great. Thanks for continuing to bring the blues.

i have this question for john. when you recorded the ep with paul butterfield in 1966 did you tape more than the 4 songs issued on the ep.its a great ep with john on piano and slide and paul blowing some great windy city harmonica.
